I would like to encourage every one to go to their shops and build the best garden bench you can. Looks like there are a lot of great prizes up for grabs to the greatest number of Lumberjocks ever. It looks like I won’t even come close to having the time to compete this time around. Two years oldstake way too much of your time. So lets get to work!

Shaker Dvd cabinet sketchup revision

06-24-2009 06:06 PM by skeeter | 0 comments »

After so many of my fellow lumberjocks had so many helpful bits of advice about my new glass door cabinet design, I decided to go back to the “drawing board.” We decided to shrink the cabinet down to 50 so I could stay in the 2×4 rule. I think it made the cabinets proportions better. We also decided to go with raised panels on the bottom doors. I didn’t draw it but the cabinet will have a back like my previous project. I think this gives your pieces a quality that no p...

Craftsman Quilt Rack (x3) #3: Almost done with finish sanding

06-24-2009 05:55 PM by Bret | 3 comments »

Tonight I’ve got a friend who’s going to help me decide whether this is ready for finishing or not. I’ve sanded the heck out of it with my RO sander at 150 and 180 grit and am going over it all at 180 tonight by hand to try to get out any remaining scratches. I decided to make the pegs or keys out of wenge to add a bit of contrast and (I hope) compliment the inlay. I’m also going over the pegs tonight with wood filler before finish sanding them tomorrow. Then it&...

Bread box #3: Sorry for the wait

06-24-2009 07:55 AM by JuniorJoiner | 6 comments »

I apologize to everyone for the delay on finishing this project. I was sidelined for a few weeks doing a stint in rehab. The veterans affairs people thought it was necessary because of my daily morphine use. So off I went… Not many woodworkers to chat with in rehab. Anyway, Here is the finished project, I had to rush to get this done, so a few minor design changes were made to save time. overall, it was a fun project and a learning experience , as i did a few things differently than ...

Setting Up Shop #4: Going Underground

06-23-2009 09:13 PM by stidrvr | 13 comments »

Little recap. After thinking and weighing options. I decided to keep my shop downstairs. Although it really wasnt a shop, it was where my tablesaw was. I wanted to move everything to the garage, but after finding out how much it would cost to put in a sub panel, it would have been cheaper to do dedicated runs to the garage. Then factoring insulation and drywall, let alone heat and a/c… it was pointless. So after cleaning, well mainly moving the collection of stuff that accumilated in...

"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

06-23-2009 08:18 PM by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...
